Sour dough

01 February, 2008
A restaurant heist turned sour, when bungling robbers mistook a $5 bag of bread rolls for a $30,000 swag bag. Donna Hayes and Benjamin Jorgensen were sent down after the failed robbery at the Cuckoo Restaurant in Melbourne, Australia, last year. The raid, which fittingly took place on April Fool’s Day, saw Jorgensen point a sawn-off shotgun at the manager and demand he hand over the bag he was carrying at the end of his shift. Aware of the contents, the manager thought it was a joke and tried explaining this to Jorgensen. Victorian County Court judge Roland Williams – generously we think – branded them a “pair of fools” and respectively jailed them for eight and seven years.
